Week 3 already!
This week we have been introduced to Numberland in maths, practised rhyming and blending in phonics and during enhancement sessions have learnt how to use the paints independently and select the correct resources for using the whiteboard.

During daily enhancement sessions we are taught a new skill or introduced to a new piece of equipment. This enables us to become independent learners during our child initiated tasks. Part of our day is spent working with an adult (teacher led or teacher directed) and the other part is independent learning (child initiated). Also through enhancement sessions we learn the difference between learning and playing.
This week we have learnt how to use the mud kitchen, how to add tyres to our large construction, how to use masking tape and sellotape and how to add sticks to our creative work.

This week we have started Funky Fingers - a programme to strengthen all the muscles needed to become writing ready. We are split into groups and each day we practise the same activity then move onto a new activity the following week. As the year progresses the exercises concentrate on the finer movements required for extended periods of writing.

Our first days at school
Three days on and we are settling well. We are beginning to learn the rules and are making new friends with people who enjoy the same things as us.
(Only some of the children are featured as I could only put their photos on when their name stickers weren't showing or had fallen off! Don't worry - there will be plenty more.)
